The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Groundfish Endangered Species Workgroup will hold a public meeting Wednesday, April 12, 2023 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time and Thursday, April 13, 2023 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., or until business for the day has been completed. The meeting will be a hybrid format with the Workgroup meeting in person, with live streaming and remote participation options.

This meeting is being conducted remotely with a web broadcast that provides the opportunity for remote public comment. In the event an outage occurs or technical issues arise that impact the experience of remote attendees, we will attempt to resolve them but ultimately we cannot guarantee that they will be resolved satisfactorily.

Purpose of the meeting

The primary purpose of this meeting is to discuss and develop work products and recommendations for the Pacific Council’s June 2023 meeting. Specifically, the Workgroup will review recent information on incidental take of species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), other than salmonids, in the Pacific Coast groundfish fishery. The Workgroup may propose for Pacific Council consideration, conservation and management measures to minimize bycatch of the pertinent ESA-listed species.
